Alma Hitchcock: The Woman Behind the Man

Przednia okładka
Alfred Hitchcock's films are a testament to his autonomy-but there was one person whose ideas and advice he valued above all others: his wife, Alma.

Who was the woman behind the most famous film director in the world?

Pat Hitchcock O'Connell offers rare insight into the life and career of her mother and father, and finally reveals Alma's extraordinary contribution to the Hitchcock legacy. Filled with fascinating personal anecdotes, Alma Hitchcock is also Pat Hitchcock's story-that of a young girl growing up in Hollywood, and her own on-set experiences in such films as Psychoand Strangers on a Train. With behind-the-scenes stories, moving testimonies from friends and family, and never-before-seen personal photos from the Hitchcock family album-as well as some of her mother's favorite recipes-Pat Hitchcock O'Connell illuminates the lives and careers of her parents as only a daughter could.
